In the U.S. Navy "Wheel Books" were once found in the uniform
pockets of every junior and many senior petty officers. Each small
notebook was unique to the Sailor carrying it, but all had in
common a collection of data and wisdom that the individual deemed
useful in the effective execution of his or her duties. Often used
as a substitute for experience among neophytes and as a portable
library of reference information for more experienced personnel,
those weathered pages contained everything from the time of the
next tide, to leadership hints from a respected chief petty
officer, to the color coding of the phone-and-distance line used in
In that same tradition, the new "Naval Institute Wheel Books"
will provide supplemental information, pragmatic advice, and cogent
analysis on topics important to modern naval professionals. Drawn
from the U.S. Naval Institute's vast archives that has been
accumulated for more than a century, the books will combine
articles from the Institute's flagship publication Proceedings,
selections from the oral history collection and from Naval
Institute Press books to create unique guides on a wide array of
relevant professional subjects.
Leadership is vital to any highly functioning organization. The
Naval Institute has devoted countless pages of its publications to
the subject of naval leadership, providing start-up guidance to
neophytes, giving voice to the accumulated wisdom and experience of
those who have led, and serving as a forum in search of answers to
the many questions that have always been a part of this vital but
sometimes elusive practice. In these pages are some of the most
outstanding examples of this wealth of knowledge, gathered here for
the use by naval officers of all rank in the never-ending quest for
strong and effective leadership.
